Cultivated Farm A

Agarwood planting is one of the Tropical Rainforest Investments, it is a long term investment. Many of us are moving into this business, regardless small or commercial scale. I have seen majority of the small scale farmer applying 3T technology, ie, “Tanam Tinggal Tuai”(Plant, Wait, Harvest) and wanted to sell the trees soonest possible,  because 1000+1 reasons behind the story. Don’t take shortcut, your hardwork will be paid eventually with the technology and technique possessed by the expert.

I have not seen any in Malaysia where the Agarwoods are successfully harvested from the cultivated farm, some of you for sure have experienced before, but not me. Thai Agarwood farmers, this phenomena already became a norm to them or being part of their life. Here i share some of the photos taken from a 8-year-old cultivated farm in Chaingrai, Thailand.
